Ahmed Ibrahim's short film Al-Matour will compete in this year's Muhr Shorts Competition at the 11th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF). 

Al-Matour is the third film by an Egyptian filmmaker to enter this year's race. The other two Egyptian films are White Sugar by Ahmed Khaled and The Aftermath of The Inauguration of the Public Toilet at Kilometer 375 by Omar El-Zohairy. 

Al-Matour is an adventure/drama film centred around three friends who are forced to confront themselves and each other after failing to reach their destination.

In 2012, Ibrahim won the Best Muhr Arab Short award for his film Noor. 

Since 2006, DIFF's Muhr competition has set the limelight on a range of short films, features and documentaries originating from the Arab world.

The festival, currently prepping for its 11th edition, will take place between 10 and 17 December.
